Audi triumph at Le Mans 2010

Rarely there has been more suspense and excitement at the 24 hours of Le Mans. What looked like a probable victory for the fast Peugeots turned into a threefold triumph for the Audi diesel race cars. What a victory. So much drama. Reliability wins over speed. After 22 hours the last Peugeot disappeared.
What also is clear that not the most beautiful cars have won, but the most efficient and effective package. A surprise is certainly the Ferrari 430 coming in second in GT2 and to some extent the Saleen winning the GT1 class.

As you said, reliability beats speed. I've read that the Audi racing team did not have one single engine break-down in the last 17 years...
Same story in the GT category: Porsche beats much faster Ferraris and Vettes... "To finish first, you have first to finish"
